ABOUT

"I walked in, scratched my knee, said my lines and played with Stephen Campbell Moore's British Army cap.

Little did I know... I was hooked!"

​Maximilian got his first role when he was just under 3 years old playing Emily Mortimer and David Tennent's son in war time film, 'Bright Young Things' directed by Stephen Fry.

 

As Maximilian grew up in London, the acting bug grew too and ​at 18 he attended the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts (ALRA) to study Acting on their three--year BA Course. Here, he soaked up everything he could about the craft, industry and discipline of Acting. Alongside his studies, on top of various short film and theatre projects, Maximilian had the privilege of working with the Royal Shakespeare Company in a four day workshop after being selected as one of 20 students from the top 10 U.K. Drama Schools. Graduating into the global pandemic as the world shut down, he persisted by honing his craft at the legendary Actors Studio Drama School. Here, actors like Maximilian, trained side by side with writers and directors, taught by Actors Studio approved teachers -- disciples who were instructed by Strasberg himself. This program also brought invaluable access to observe sessions at the Actors Studio on W44th Street.

When not in classes, he spent his evenings rehearsing and performing new work including New York Times featured play 'Dimes Square' by Matthew Gasda. Maximilian graduated from the Actors Studio Drama School as the sole recipient of their coveted Acting Excellence Award. Almost immediately he started working with legendary director, writer and acting coach, Greta Seacat, on Chekhov's 'Three Sisters' along with lifetime members of the Actors Studio where he's currently a finalist.

Recent stage work includes new one act play 'Last Rites' by Sarah Wiseman, Romeo from Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet' and Tuzenbach in 'Three Sisters'. In 2023 he also starred in and co-produced short-film 'Perpendicular'.

Maximilian is currently working in Paris on film, 'Will I See You Again'. This is a romance film about a struggling writer in Paris fighting for the woman he loves.
